NEIGHBOURS did not oppose plans for extensions to a semi.

The application was made at 3 Olive Drive, Neston, by Mr B Robinson.

Mr Robinson told planning officers at Cheshire West and Chester Council he was seeking approval for a two-storey extension at the side of the property and a single-storey extension at the rear.

A detached garage would be demolished. The plans included a loft conversion with roof lights.

A lounge extension had permission at the house in 1977, according to a report.

Other nearby properties also have extensions, said planners after visiting Olive Drive.

No objections were raised by Neston Town Council.

Planners suggested both extensions would be in keeping with the character of the house.

There would be no unacceptable effect on neighbours although they suggested that permission should be required for any future first floor windows in the side of the new-build.

They pointed out the rear extension did not meet the guidelines but accepted there was a similar size extension at no 1.

On balance, planning officers felt there would be no undue detriment to the neighbours.

The application was recommended for approval and the council agreed the plans could have permission.
